Workers begin £750k Conwy bridge repair work

Workers are putting up the scaffolding on a Conwy bridge as they prepare to begin £750,000 corrosion repairs to the structure next to the town's iconic Conwy Castle.

The 300ft (100m) structure links the town of Conwy with Llandudno Junction.

Engineers described installing scaffolding across the bridge arches as "complicated".

Pigeons have also posed one of the biggest problems, with a skip full of droppings expected to be scrapped from the bridge during maintenance.
